I thought that the official twitter application was good but was lacking some customisation features that other twitter clients have had for a while.
So I started searching around and I found this free Application called “Tweet Arena”.
The time line
Although the time line can take some time to connect (Depending on your signal) the time is actually really good, it looks nice and clean. The grey background is slightly textured, which gives off a professional finish to the time line. As with the official twitter client, this app will also update when you swipe upwards.
The posting tweet section is brilliant.
It is just there waiting for you to post a tweet and its simple and easy to use.
As the screen shot is showing you can actually have a background/wallpaper on this screen, I think this gives the post screen a little more professionalism, and it can be easy on the eyes. You can also adjust the font colour if you so desire.
Also if you click on the “Cog” icon on the bottom left of the screen (Above the keyboard) you can upload a picture to a service you specify in the settings.
The menu you shows you all the location services and other options and settings that you might want to use, again the colours work well together here and looks really clean and professional. There are more settings if you swipe the screen to the right. The other page contains URL shortening, contacts and so on.
The settings speak for them selves.
I really like this twitter application, its obvious that great time and effort has been put into making this application. Its fast and efficient enough to get average users by. It should be your default twitter client on your iPod touch.
However it would be nice to see an easier method of posting images to twitter, as the little cog icon isn’t noticeable at first glance, and something should be done to make the application start up a little quicker.
Is this client worth the download? Do you have any other twitter clients to suggest? Leave them in the comments below.
